Overview

This Catalina Maple Mounted Snare starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. This shell was carefully developed to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm. This snare features Gretsch Classic features and hardware, including 30-degree bearing edges and 9020-style mounting brackets.

All drums feature a multi-step lacquer process that produces an extremely glassy-smooth finish that is hard and durable. In addition, Gretsch partnered with Evans drumheads to produce a distinctive Gretsch by Evans batter and resonant head combination.

Features
  • 7-ply, 7.2mm, 100% maple shell
  • Classic Gretsch 30-degree bearing edge

Great sounding but still overpriced

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Mounted Snare Drum:

I tried several 10" snare drums in recent years and experimented with various wires and hoops to try to get the sound I was after. I had given up. This is the best sounding and playing of all. Having only 14 snare wires was a good idea as were the heavy hoops. Only four stars because the chrome on the hoops and throw has an "orange-peel" pitted finish and the shell exterior has unfilled voids in the grain that should have been filled before finishing. The bearing edges are rough and strangely shaped. So it sounds great but the rest is mediocre.

Wow, You will be glad you got one!

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Mounted Snare Drum:

I cut my teeth on Rogers drums in the 60s, then got a set of Ludwig vistalite '73 ... Still have them. Now I have a set of Gretsch Catalina maple..... This snare is the sound I have always wanted... It's small diameter fits nicely between my high hat and 14 snare and my 8 " Tom above it. Boy does it Pop!! It sounds like the rift at the beginning of Two Princes by the Spin Doctors. This is the Spice of Life. Awesome Fun. If you get one you will be Glad you did. That Great Gretsch Sound!!!
